Spring Break 2018: Pressing Plants

Thursday, March 22: Pressing Plants | 12:00 – 12:30 pm

If cared for, a plant specimen can last hundreds of years in a museum. But how is this done? Learn how to collect and press plants for art and science with Linda Jennings, the Herbarium’s Assistant Curator of Vascular Plants & Algae.

This activity takes place in the Niche Café and outside – dress accordingly!
